The grandeur of Jerusalem is also… its problem.
Umberto Eco

Jerusalem is a time bomb that I fear is just waiting to go off.
Abdullah II of Jordan

Zionism demands a publicly recognized and legally secured homeland in Palestine for the Jewish people. This platform is unchangeable.
Theodor Herzl

We regard it as our duty to declare that Jewish Jerusalem is an organic and inseparable part of the State of Israel, as it is an inseparable part of the history of Israel, of the faith of Israel.
David Ben-Gurion

In the Jewish tradition, there is at the same time Jerusalem in the heavens and Jerusalem on the ground. Jerusalem is a living city, but also the heart, the soul of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.
Yitzhak Rabin

We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.
Yasser Arafat

Arafat is wrong. Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, will never be divided, and will remain the capital of the State of Israel, the capital of the Jewish people, for ever and ever.
Benjamin Netanyahu

The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.
Yasser Arafat

United Jerusalem has been and will forever be the capital of the Jewish People.
Reuven Rivlin

The Palestinian rifle is ready and we will aim it if they try to prevent us from praying in Jerusalem.
Yasser Arafat

In my office in Jerusalem, there’s an ancient seal. It’s a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. The seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2,700 years, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there’s a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew. His name was Netanyahu.
Benjamin Netanyahu

I often hear them accuse Israel of Judaizing Jerusalem. That’s like accusing America of Americanizing Washington, or the British of Anglicizing London. You know why we’re called ‘Jews’? Because we come from Judea.
Benjamin Netanyahu

God instructed Nehemiah to build a wall around Jerusalem to protect its citizens from enemy attack. You see, God is not against building walls!
Robert Jeffress

We promise you that we will not cede a single part of Palestine, we will not cede Jerusalem, we will continue to fight and we will not lay down our arms.
Ismail Haniyeh

Jordan is Palestine. The capital of Palestine is Amman. If Palestinian Arabs want to find their political expression, they will have to do it in Amman.
Ariel Sharon

I think you have to look at the fact that every presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat, has all said that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the embassy should be moved. President Trump’s the only one that had the courage to actually do that.
Nikki Haley

The Old City of Jerusalem is in our hands.
Moshe Dayan

Palestine is the cement that holds the Arab world together, or it is the explosive that blows it apart.
Yasser Arafat

There is no more Palestine. Finished.
Moshe Dayan

Jerusalem is united; it will never be divided again.
Yitzhak Rabin

The metaphor for Palestine is stronger than the Palestine of reality.
Mahmoud Darwish

The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world; it is more, it is the history of earth and of heaven.
Benjamin Disraeli
